The Keyholding Company (KHC) the UK’s premier commercial keyholding and emergency response provider is delighted to announce exciting new strategic alliances with two major partners, as well as the launch of a ground-breaking new operational app which will be unveiled at this year’s IFSEC exhibition.

Established for over 15 years, KHC currently provides security services to over 15,000 properties. Each development to be revealed at IFSEC 2014 furthers the company’s pursuit of innovation in the provision of intelligent outsourced security.

The company will announce a new partnership with Facewatch, the new crime reporting system used by businesses and the Police to improve response time and information quality when reporting a crime.

KHC’s state-of-the-art National Control Centre will be hosting a Facewatch Crime Reporting Centre, where trained KHC operators will report crimes directly to the Police on behalf of their clients’ via an online system.

KHC is also pleased to announce it has been appointed as an authorised reseller to the security industry of Toughshield’s rugged smart devices in the UK.

The new Toughshield R500+ features an ultra-ruggedised design for maximum durability, and a host of security features including a dedicated push-to-talk and Lone Worker button, making it the ideal device for mobile employees, security personnel, field force and lone workers.

The water-resistant device is easy to use and features enhanced battery capability, which is important for KHC security operatives who may be out in the field for prolonged periods. The lightweight device also features a super-strength screen which is brightly lit making it easy for operatives to use and read at night.

KHC is so impressed with the Toughshield R500+ that it is recommending the device to its Service Partner network as they adopt their pioneering new CHASE app for KHC activity in the field. The app will be demonstrated on the Toughshield devices to showcase the technology in its optimised format.

CHASE is designed to streamline communications between the client, the operative on duty and the KHC Control Centre, providing unparalleled visibility to all parties of all emergency response or site patrol activity.

CHASE ensures a transparent step-by-step account of any incident and at the end of a job the client is alerted to all activity by email ensuring quick, accurate reporting. The new software replaces a paper reporting and manual inputting system thereby enabling improved data accuracy and a greatly reduced administration burden.

Visit Stand No G1600, where personnel from the KHC, Facewatch and Toughshield teams will be in attendance, to discuss your security requirements and discover the latest innovations from the country’s leading providers of outsourced security. There will also be some exciting show-only special offers for IFSEC visitors.
